With Scrapblog, you have the ability to scrapbook digitally, blog and connect with a whole community
Rosemont, IL (PRWEB) July 18, 2008 -
Scrapblog.com, the first craft on the Web and leading service for creating and sharing scrapbooks online, will showcase its powerful and easy-to-use Web-based application at the summer CHA (Craft and Hobby Association) conference beginning today through Sunday, July 20.
Enjoyed by both paper and digital scrapbookers, Scrapblog celebrated its one year anniversary in April with more than 2.4 million Scrapblog pages created.
Scrapblog's vibrant and active user base highlights a growing trend within the craft community. According to a 2008 survey from Creating Keepsakes, 65 percent of digital scrapbookers in the U.S. are former paper scrapbookers. Among those digital scrapbookers, 45 percent said they now scrapbook digitally for the community, while 40 percent do so because they can create unique and personalized scrapbooks digitally in less time and with less mess.
Scrapblog enables everyone to be an artist by creating and sharing unique and personalized multimedia scrapbooks online. Users can mix their photos, videos, audio, text and various expressive elements without any necessary downloads from their computer or their favorite social media sites including YouTube, Photobucket and Flickr. Once created, Scrapblogs can be shared with just a few friends or the entire world as it currently supports direct publishing to Blogger, Typepad, Wordpress, Flickr, MySpace, Facebook and other popular social networking platforms.
"We are seeing great technological advances in the scrapbooking industry -- from new tools that allow more creativity, to new products that elevate the craft to new heights," says Carlos Garcia, Founder and CEO of Scrapblog. "At Scrapblog, we want to contribute to the evolution of scrapbooking by enabling paper and digital scrapbookers to create stunning multimedia scrapbooks in an environment that is not only free, but also drag-and-drop-easy."
Beginning in August, Scrapbloggers will be able to print and transform their Scrapblogs into real-life keepsakes and gifts. Giving CHA attendees an exclusive sneak preview at its booth, Scrapblog will showcase its soon to be offered, high-quality photo-books, greeting cards and postcards throughout the conference.
Along with its new printing features, Scrapblog will also highlight at CHA premium digital content soon be available at Scrapblog.com. Featuring themes, stickers, backgrounds and frames from content partners such as Anna Griffin, Cosmo Cricket, Rhonna Farrer, and other popular paper and digital scrapbooking brands, Scrapblog brings the art of journaling, preserving memories, and connecting through photos to everyday people through its highly personalized, imaginative and sharable online application.
"Scrapbookers are always looking for new ways to express themselves. Scrapblog is here to give them a fun and easy-to-use way to create digital scrapbooks and unleash their creativity," Garcia adds. "Offering high-quality printing and premium content from the brands that scrapbookers know and love is something that our community has been craving. We could not be more thrilled to welcome brands like Anna Griffin, Cosmo Cricket and Rhonna Farrer to Scrapblog."
"We pride ourselves on innovation and trend setting, so for us, partnering with Scrapblog, a leader within the digital crafting community, to bring our papers and embellishments to the web just makes sense," says award-winning paper and scrapbook designer, Anna Griffin (President of Anna Griffin, Inc.).
"Creating Scrapbook pages in minutes is the norm with this user-friendly application, and you don't have to deal with the mess," Griffin adds. "The days of downloading your digital photos to sit in a folder are over; say hello to technology that actually allows you to display those photos in a fun and creative way!"
In addition to a "drag and drop easy" application and premium digital content, many Scrapblog members say that a large part of its appeal lies in the strong sense of community created by using Scrapblog -- both offline and online! From mothers who create Scrapblog pages with their children, to online friends who share Scrapblogs to keep in touch, the exchange of ideas and encouragement provides Scrapbloggers not only with an engaging digital scrapbooking experience, but also a true e-neighborhood.
"With Scrapblog, you have the ability to scrapbook digitally, blog and connect with a whole community," said Rhonna Farrer, a celebrity scrapbook designer. "It's one-of-a-kind and our whole family is loving it -- so fun and easy. From children to grandparents, we can all go online, create fast, fabulous pages and then share them with family and friends. It's my new fave!"
